Craftsmas Day 6: DIY Minimal Christmas Tree

12a

Christmas trees traditionally are a holiday must have. But let’s face it; they can be an inconvenience whether real or faux. Trees take time to find and decorate and can also take up a lot of space. It’s a joyous process for many but, if you’re like me, you like to keep things simple.

Keep things simple and stay in the holiday spirit by crafting a minimal Christmas tree. Minimal trees can be assembled on a wall with basic supplies and can be created in less than 10 minutes. No hassles or worries. Are you ready to make one? Let’s get started!

Materials

1a

For this project you will need tinsel garland, Washi tape, tree décor (optional), and scissors.

Instructions

Fold your tinsel garland in half and tape it to the wall at its halfway point.

2a

Pull one strand of the tinsel to an angle and tape it down. Repeat this instruction with the other strand.

Close the bottom of the tree. I taped both ends of the tinsel to the middle before tucking in the ends.

Cut off excess tinsel and use it to form layers for the tree. Either tape or wrap them around the sides of the tree.

At this point, you can either leave the tree as is or decorate it. I tied a few baubles to the tinsel and added a ribbon puff as a tree topper.
